Bright-Happy-Fun Toby:

Good morning bloggin' buddies! My head is a little fuzzy at the moment, I can't seem to shake Mr. Sandman. If I start to really ramble or don't make much sense at all then you will know why :)

I am sure drinking more of my delicious coffee, watching the sun come up past the trees, and listening to all the lil birdies chirp should wake me up shortly.

Today I am sharing a card meant just for me! I love bright, happy, fun cards!

I started with Toby Love {found here}:

This should no doubt put a smile on anyone's face, it certainly did mine!

Tip: I use my straight edge cutter A LOT. I go through blades very, very quickly. When I notice they are dragging the paper and not giving a sharp cut, I throw a piece of tin foil on the cutter and run the blade back and forth a couple of times. It give the blade a bit of renewed life! Or at least until you can get to the craft store to buy some more!

Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; me and my BIG ideas paper and ??? paper (from my stash); Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Label Eight Nestie; Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch; Martha Stewart White flock; Prima flowers; Dress It Up flowers.

LOVE the blue paper, and thanks for the tip about the foil, I am going to have to try that out. His nose is the finishing touch, all fluffy. Bold and beautiful, and yes it made me smile.
